Low-Budget Week Starts the Mind Gears

August 19th, 2012 at 08:03 pm

$250 to last us six days, and not just the food budget (not much challenge to live on $250 worth of food for two adults and a kiddie). My household's remaining food items are refrigerated vegetables, half of which will be juiced; eggs; condiments; salmon; frozen perogies and vegetables; boneless skinless chicken thighs; handpicked berries; buckwheat soba noodles; quinoa; brown rice; sushi rice; pasta; oatmeal; sun-dried tomatoes.

Ideas: Oyako Donburi, Garlic Lime Salmon, Lentils 'n' Rice or Kusherie, Kasha Varnishkes, Frittatas, Karaage, some Pino Luongo recipes (the famed restauranteur/cookbook author went bankrupt in NYC recently), Perogies for those who want 'em, Coconut Chicken Curry, and Meatloaf.

    Please share your recipe for Kasha Varnishkes, what fun to make an old country side dish!

    Kasha Varnishkes is just buckwheat prepared to pkg directions mixed w/cooked bow tie pasta and seasoned (I use onion powder , black pepper)then moistened w/schmaltz (I substitute EVOO).

    Actually one of my independent stores has the buckwheat on sale this week for $2/nearly 2 lb pkg. Its going to hit my menu plan soon.
